    Conor's hype and numbers where enough to hugely inflate the valuation of the UFC and The Fertitas knew they would never get anywhere close to those kind of offers which made them sell up and left UFC in the hands of Jewish aldult film makers.

    If Conor weren't around and Zuffa was still in charge, the potential Liddell comeback would still be on.

    i think they were just ready to move on and do more interesting things and cash out on a long term business project. plus now they dont need to use zuffa cash flow and loans to support station casinos now that it is public again as red rock, they are in control and it is profitable again.

    Yeah...

    Buying something for $2M. Then selling it for $4.2B screams of desperation, and pressure. An absolute certainty that the product could never possibly appreciate any more in value. And how much money did the big three get paid, or receive as dividends during that whole time ?

    I also the anti-semetic part of your post.

    It's was literally an offer they couldn't refuse. And they want to get into NFL football. Seems like a whole lot of common sense.

    Conor didn't MAKE the Bros do shit. Smarten up.

    Exactly this, they got an offer they couldn't refuse, why try hold on for another 10+ years to get more when someone offers something crazy.

    Of course if all goes bad they can rebuy back for a smaller price
